and here we have another one brewing regarding the debt ceiling. let's get rid of it. i'm all for smaller government, but this economy right now, guys, still remains fragile and you can't have the american consumer having to worry about going through all the rigamarole in washington all over again, and that hits consumer reading and we don't need that right now. i'm all for smaller government, but let's get rid testi of it and be done with it. >> brenda: the fear is that we might get our credit rating downgraded and that's part of the debate and worry about the debt ceiling. >> that's ultimately worse than raising the debt ceiling is having default or crisis. the government gets their debt rating lowered again to the point they can't get lower rates, that means the mortgages rates and housing is coming back. it would be great to control the debt with the debt ceiling. as you see through history, examples given it doesn't work at all. it becomes a political football, the other party not it in power, decides it's an of important thing. and president obama used to hate the debt ceilings. it'
of the debt ceiling and your own history with the debt ceiling and doesn't that suggest we're going into a default because no one is talking to each other how to resolve this? >> no, major, i think if you look at the history, getting votes for the debt ceiling is always difficult. >> jon: president obama a little testy there answering a question from cbs news white house correspondent major garrett, formerly of this network. it was mr. obama's final news conference of his first term. so, what did you think, judy, about the questions that the president received? only seven of them for a news conference. the answers went on very long. >> you might even say stonewalling answers, each answer was roughly the equivalent of about seven and a half minutes. no wonder there's no time for follow-ups. look, the white house press corps, how many times do we have to talk about it. other than major garrett, who was a sight to see there, even jake tapper said, oh, yes, major always asks good questions, when he was on fox we didn't call on him much. that's what this is about. the white house press c
the government borrow more money effectively raising the debt ceiling. the deal not all worked out just yet. but apparently it this will not require the spending cuts that house republicans had wanted. just released fox news poll finds that 69% favor raising the debt limit only if there are major spending cuts involved. and 23% say it's reckless not to raise it regardless. the poll also shows more than 8 in 10 think government spending is out of control. only 11% believes it's being managed carefully. mike immanuel tracking developments on the hill tonight. what's behind this house republican plan. >> bill, a lot of g.o.p. frustration has been based on the fact the senate has not passed a budget. so republicans are trying to force it house speaker john boehner told house members, quote: before there is any long-term debt alowe time for a budget to get done. >> he our hope is to pass something very early so the senate can take action as well. i wouldn't put any jeopardizing of the economy there. shows that it is a very rational, put us on a better path and i would think all the american pub
that happened on christmas day in 2009. and the crisis averted in washington over the debt ceiling standoff, at least for now. house republicans expected to vote on wednesday, to raise the debt limit for another three months. the g.o.p. says the move would give both chambers of congress time to pass a federal budget. if one isn't passed they'll try to prevent members of congress from getting paid. i'm jamie colby, i'll send you back to cavuto on business. see new 30 minutes. >> well, doctor, doctor, give me the news, and a private efficacy group in support of the health care laws is now hosting a tax section with journalists on the best way to cover the president's health care law, offering what they're calling specialized education in health care reporting. charlie gasperino. >> i can't wait to sign up, dude. (laughter) >> isn't that weird and that anyone would sign up for, i'm sorry we got it wrong. >> any, any journalists that signs up for this should be thrown out of the industry immediately and taking-- i'm trying to take it seriously. it's so stupid it's unbelievable. i'm going to p
past the fiscal cliff. now we are going to hit the debt ceiling debasement now it appears house g.o.p. members are putting forth this idea. maybe a bit of an olive branch saying three month extension in the debt ceiling would enable them to come to some sort of a deal not without caveats on spending. turk turk tied to. the budget. the senate hasn't in three years. unless the senate comes up with a budget by april 15th. no more pay for members of congress. which might be a stimulus of its own kind. >> alisyn: there is a new fox news poll about how americans are feeling about this. all of our budget battles. here is the question we asked. is government spending being managed carefully or out of control? not surprisingly now 83% of you say that it is out of control verses just 11% who say it's managed carefully and those numbers have become more extreme in the past two and three years. >> here is another big question we asked you fox news poll should the debt limit be raised again? of course it's been raised every year. the majority of you said only after major cuts are put in place.
the debt ceiling. this is the question we posed. is reduce the federal deficit a worthy goal? this is interesting you may recall white house press secretary made news by stating that deficit reduction is, quote not a worthy goal onto itself. 77% of voters disagree with them and that includes large majorities of republicans, independents and democrats. what is your take on this? >> again i don't want to be a downer here, the question is what urgency to do they place on that. we had an election two months ago where there were two candidates, one was more focused on cutting the deficit and reducing our long term debt and one didn't think it was a big concern. the one who didn't think it was a big concern won the election. yes, voters seem to say that is an issue they agree with, but when it came to election day two months ago that certainly wasn't one of the top issues they voted on because they voted for the candidate who wasn't embody go it. >> heather: through his actions, as well. that leads to this, how f or if it should be raised? should the debt limit be raised again, 23%
